    July 19, 2015 - Delicious, but suffered by comparison to the '75 Heitz Martha's Vineyard we had just prior. My wife says this wine has a cocaine note on the nose. I have no idea! Liked it but hard to judge against that backdrop.

    May 2, 2015 - Notable only for being the most corked example I've ever come across.

    March 15, 2015 - Very romantic nose of s'mores, red raspberry, Italian cream soda, as well as hints of jasmine and a soft women's perfume. Dense freshly picked raspberries up front, raspberry palate with jasmine undertones. Cinnamon graham cracker falls in and carries a lengthy finish. This is soft, sensual, and unravels at a slow motion pace. Silky texture and very feminine; Keira Knightley in a silk dress. Elegant and beautiful.
